How Manufacturers Can Increase Profits by Revamping FP&A

Reducing costs, while continuing to meet customer expectations, is often a delicate balancing act. As complexity rises, maintaining this balance can require a frightening amount of decisions and actions, all of which rely on having the right information at the right time. Even scarier — outdated FP&A processes and solutions are not helping manufacturers to do so, and cost as much as 50% of their profits. Fortunately, you can rid yourself of the frustrations of inefficient systems and manual processes with Acterys 360ibp.
